Read from February 07 to 11, 2011

Flicker pissed me off. Why? Because it was too long, too suspenseful, and I didn't have a whole lot of free time for reading this week. Impatient to unravel the mystery, I stayed up late, I arose early just to find out what the hell was going to happen!

The book is filled with crap I love to hate: snobby sophistication, scholarly intelligence, critics, conspiracy theories, name-dropping, detailed technological descriptions. And yet despite all this and a prolonged (and yes, masterful) suspense, Flicker was compelling.

This book had a hold on me and even now at it's completion, it won't let go. I loved the beginning, I loved the ending, and although the middle left me frustrated, it was only because I so eagerly wanted to solve the great mystery of Castle's work.

Kathryn Yay! One of my friends is reading this! I've been very curious and nearly bought it a few times but I'm still not certain. Hope it's good!
